Rising Chicago underground rapper Rico Recklezz was arrested on a weapons charge just days after his release from jail.
Rico, whose birth name is Ronnie Ramsey, and eight others were arrested while filming a music video in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, according to The Chicago Tribune.
Rico and two other men, Sheldon Cobb, 24, and 19-year-old Rayvon Lollis, are facing felony charges, according to ABC 7.
Police found the men in possession of three firearms after responding to a report of criminal trespass, CBS 2 reports.
Rico, 22, was charged with one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and criminal trespass to land, according to DNAinfo.
Rico’s girlfriend took to Twitter to come to her beau’s defense.
“ALL @RICO_RECKLEZZ wanted TO DO WAS GO HARD FOR HIS FANZ HE LUV HIS FANZ AS IF THEY WAS FAMILY SMH,” she wrote.
Rico was prepping the release of his highly anticipated mixtape “Fa Da Fans,” which was to be hosted DJ Cortez, Dj Louie V and DJ Suspence.
Rico had new music for fans upon his initial release from jail. The Wugga World rapper released the gritty Chase N Dough-produced track “Hood N---- S---.”
Rico sought the production talents of Mr. 2 Canons for the visual.
Rico is in due in court today.
